Augmenting Long-term Memory
Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible. – Richard Feynman
By contrast, when I'm reading in support of some creative project, I ask much better Anki questions. I find it easier to connect to the questions and answers emotionally. I simply care more about them, and that makes a difference. So while it's tempting to use Anki cards to study in preparation for some (possibly hypothetical) future use, it's better to find a way to use Anki as part of some creative project.

Learn fast and forget about forgetting |
Back in the late 1980s, the SuperMemo World company was first to apply computers to optimize intervals between repetitions. Today, we are still the world leader in research on human long-term memory. Although spaced repetition is common in educational apps nowadays, SuperMemo continues to be the unique source of original research and development in this field.

With the SuperMemo method, you can memorize thousands of words, facts and rules, once and for all. The algorithm makes sure that you minimize the time you spend on learning and repetitions, and achieve your learning goals in the most effective way.

HN:Wired story on SuperMemo, Anki and Piotr Wozniak (2008)
SuperMemo is a program that keeps track of discrete bits of information you've learned and want to retain. For example, say you're studying Spanish. Your chance of recalling a given word when you need it declines over time according to a predictable pattern. SuperMemo tracks this so-called forgetting curve and reminds you to rehearse your knowledge when your chance of recalling it has dropped to, say, 90 percent.
